Why Whole Brain® Thinking and the HBDI®?

Transform your thinking using a proven and validated system.

Whole Brain® Thinking provides organisation’s with a framework that allows them to harness thinking diversity for better results. It is the foundation for the highly validated Herrmann Brain Dominance Instrument® (HBDI®), which measures thinking preferences of individuals, teams, and organisations.

Some of the many benefits include:

  • Improved communication, problem-solving, and decision-making.
  • Elevated performance and employee engagement.
  • Increased thinking agility and diversity within your organisation.

WHOLE BRAIN THINKING

Whole Brain® Thinking is a scalable framework which provides a lens for improved understanding and insight.

It acknowledges that different tasks require different mental processes, and different people prefer different kinds of thinking. Whole Brain® Thinking helps organisations get better results when they can strategically leverage the full spectrum of thinking available.

Everyone has access to all four quadrants but to varying degrees. Our database indicates that 5% of the population have a preference for one quadrant, 58% have a preference for two quadrants, 34% have a preference for three quadrants and 3% prefer all four equally.

Applying Whole Brain® Thinking means being able to fully leverage one’s own preferences, stretch to other quadrants when necessary, and adapt to and take advantage of the preferences of those around you to improve performance and results.

It is the framework which underpins the highly validated Herrmann Brain Dominance Instrument® (HBDI®), the profile at the heart of the Herrmann Whole Brain® Thinking System.

Herrmann Brain Dominance Instrument® (HBDI)

The foundation for thinking agility, cognitive diversity, and innovative thinking

The HBDI® is a powerful psychometric assessment that defines and describes the degree to which we think in the four quadrants of the Whole Brain® Model. The data helps us adapt our thinking preferences to communicate effectively, improve decision making and problem solving.

After completing the survey, the person receives a comprehensive HBDI® Profile report that includes in-depth interpretation of the results, reference material about the Whole Brain® Model, comparison data, and activities for further exploration and development.

You also have access to the HBDI® app for immediate insight and application upon completion of the survey.

It provides the basis for Whole Brain® Thinking and all of our learning programs based on the Whole Brain® Model.
